THE BRONX - Hockey came to the Bronx today as the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils faced off in an outdoor game at Yankee Stadium. 

Outside Yankee Stadium, the celebration continued for the thousands who came to watch the game. Restaurants, including Billy's Sports Bar on East 161st Street, hosted fans.

Souvenirs were given out and Nok Hockey tables were set up outside businesses to provide some friendly competition for those who weren't heading to Yankee Stadium. "It cost $300 to get in. Not many people can afford it, we want to make sure they are part of the celebration," says one Rangers fan.

A second game, between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, will happen Wednesday night.
